This footage was taken today at Srednyaya Bay. The whale jail is empty, the nets in the enclosures are pulled up, there’s hardly any people on the premises. A year ago at this time there were 11 orcas and 90 beluga whales. Later we found out that Kirill the orca and 3 belugas were missing…
All winter last year we were worried about the remaining orcas and belugas. They survived. The whole country and the world stood up for the whales and we managed to get them released.
The second minute of the video shows footage from last year. When the prison was full of belugas and orcas.
Seeing footage of an empty whale jail and knowing that each of us was involved to make it happen is just priceless. To realize that right now they don’t keep poor baby whales and dolphins – that’s true happiness. Knowing that our babies are back where they belong truly warms our hearts.
Many didn’t believe that ordinary people could get orcas and belugas released. But we did! Never listen to those who say that your voice does not matter! Yes, it matters! Each of us can change the world! The main thing is not to remain indifferent. You’ve all proved that even the most impossible things are possible! Thank you!
Special thanks to @ccic77 for both videos.
